Down-to-earth Frederick has great views
Lap siding and a welcoming front porch give a traditional, country-style look to the Frederick. Wooden columns and handrails harken back to a simpler, less-hurried time, when families relaxed on porch swings, and friends dropped by to chat.
This plan is designed for construction on land that slopes down to the right and rear, where a wide deck offers a splendid view. In fact, since all of the rear rooms offer excellent views, this plan is ideal for construction as a vacation home. Picture a panoramic view of a lake, ocean, canyon or grassy meadow scene arrayed below.
The foyer opens into a bayed den on the right, and stairs on the left. Natural light washes down over the stairway through an arched window there. The window seat halfway up is the perfect spot for enjoying a good book. Three bedrooms and a wide balcony are on the second floor.
Three family gathering spaces flow together at the rear. The spacious living room has a gas fireplace. It flows into an octagonal dining room, which in turn is open to the kitchen.
The C-shaped kitchen offers a wealth of cupboard and counter space. Families that enjoy cooking together will find plenty of space to work without getting in each other's way. A raised eating bar rims the kitchen/dining room boundary, and the view from the kitchen sink is splendid. A powder room and a large utility room with a deep sink are nearby.
Upstairs, plenty of natural light spills into the Frederick's large, luxurious master suite through a wide bay window outfitted with a window seat, and more washes in through dual skylights.
